Singing Sand, Somewhere Close to Us is the first in a series of collaborative exhibitions concerned with the visual and aural re-imagining of ‘dune song’, the sound emitted by sand during avalanches.




The Italian fluxus composer has contributed his version of this Fluxus score by Ken Friedman: Glasses: one filled with ice water, one with boiling tea, one or more empty glasses. Liquids are transferred from glass to glass, until the tea is cooled to drinking temperature. Link

George Cisneros - Music For Dripping Water

Written by

Taken from Music for a Williamson Tunnel CD 

A short excerpt from the 45-minute master tape of San Antonio-based Cisneros’ 1981 installation Music for Dripping Water. Water was recorded dripping onto an array of hubcaps placed beneath the eaves of the composer’s home studio during a Texas rainstorm. A single microphone captured these sounds as ‘live’ signal sources for manipulation.

Susan Collins - Dripping Water

Written by

Taken from the Music for the Williamson Tunnels CD

A short excerpt from Susan’s Introductory Exchanges installation (1993). A series of audio devices were placed at intervals along the Woolwich Foot Tunnel under the Thames with sounds, including dripping water, activated by passing viewers. Recorded onto looped answering-machine cassette tapes, the audio was played through walkmans and tiny amps and collaged with the reverberant audio of the tunnel itself.
